We are pleased to announce the release of version 1.2.6 of the HDDcoin Blockchain.
Special thanks to everyone who, during the last couple of days, helped to test the application while still in beta. Here are the main changes:
- Incorporated upstream Chia v1.2.6 updates and fixes, including an important fix that addresses a resource bug with nodes. This version resolves the memory utilization issue related to how nodes handle compact VDFs generated from blueboxes, and prevent them from consuming excessive memory when many Bluebox Timelords are active on the chain. Please update to this new version at the earliest convenience.
- Fixed issues with reloading plot files detected as bad (this can happen during plot copying).
- Adjusted plot refresh parameter to improve plot loading times.
- Updated to BLS 1.0.6.
- Updates to the Rust conditions parser.

NOTES REGARDING THE OLD SSL
On July 16th 2021, at on 1:00PM GMT / 8:00AM CST, we implemented a patch that changed out our Blockchain SSL certificates to prevent invalid peers from connecting to HDDcoin farmers and causing frequent or constant sync issues. From our last count, over 1000 farmers who installed HDDcoin before this patch date are yet to swap their old SSL for the new one. If you are one of these farmers, please migrate to the new SSL by following the instructions here –> https://hddcoin.org/sslupdate.
Updating your application to v1.2.6 while still on the old SSL will not automatically update the SSL, neither will it help you overcome all the issues faced with the old SSL. And since you will mostly be out of sync, win rates will be extremely low compared to your farm size. Also, joining a pool while on the old SSL will result in your Earning Capacity being extremely low… In short, you will always be at a huge disadvantage sticking with the old SSL, so why should you?
